The Purpose of Prime Timers

We are a local Chapter of Prime Timers World Wide that provides mature gay and bisexual men (and their admirers) opportunities to come together in a supportive atmosphere to enjoy social, educational, and recreational activities.


The PTSL Annual Holiday Banquet is Saturday December 6 at 5 PM.  See the calendar listing for details.

Our members create a multiplicity of events and activities. We strive to insure a variety of affordable events such that every member can find interesting activities with which to be able to actively participate and enjoy friendship and fellowship with other older gay and bi men. Examples of activities enjoyed by Prime Timers include:

Monthly Brunches Potlucks, dining out nights and picnics.

Movies, Plays, Game Nights (Bridge, Board & Card Games.)

Monthly Meetings with Education and Social Fellowship Hours.

Local trips to museums, walking tours and other points of interest.

Woody Baldwin, founder of Prime Timers World Wide has said “Even if you coordinate an event and only four men go to it, that event is a success because those four men got to do something they enjoy and were not sitting at home alone.”

Outdoor Activities (Cycling, Camping, Hiking, Golf)

Out of Town Trips by carpooling, bus & train, Cruises

Day Trips to the countryside and nearby towns

And more activities to meet our changing interests

Health – weight management and healthy food choices.

Travel – gay friendly destinations and ideas on a budget.

Medicare and drug benefit, Long Term Care — Navigating the Maze

Staying active and building supportive social networks.

Financial Planning – a secure and fiscally sound retirement.

Legal – the need for wills, trusts, and powers of attorney.
